Facebook said: "The lasers used in FSO (Free Space Optics) systems provide extremely high bandwidth and capacity, just like fiber optic terrestrial networks", but also noted that lasers must be accurately calibrated and "optical requires contact between the two ends of the connection, which means that they will not work through the clouds and will be very vulnerable to bad weather. ”
